Our mission is to inspire all our students to find their own creative signatures through research-based tuition; to nurture students, building confidence in all elements of their creative journey utilising coaching and mentoring knowledge. We will ensure only the highest quality of provision is offered by supporting our programmes with up-to-date research and training. We will break down barriers and discover the unique creativity of each person who walks through our doors, using the arts. Finally, and most importantly, we will celebrate every success, no matter the size, to ensure that anyone who engages and works with us finds moments of joy in themselves and in their artistic journey.
At BHVA we strive to empower all who walk through our doors, whether you are taking up an art form for the first time, are wanting to improve your performance, or are looking to develop your teaching pedagogy. We do this by providing a nurturing, creative and all-inclusive atmosphere, with innovative teaching practices to promote student’s personal and artistic growth and celebrate all successes.
Our Academies provide individual and group tutoring across voice, music, dance, drama and art for ALL ages and ALL abilities. Throughout all our sessions we focus no the students in front of us to ensure they are able to explore and develop their creative skills.
Our Roots programme allows us to connect with local organisations and communities to bring the arts our in to the community for all to share.
Our Arts4All uses the Arts to help with breaking down barriers and building up life skills. Each programme is bespoke to the outcomes required for the individual or organisation.
We also strive to empower other arts providers with support through training and coaching to help with growing their business and knowledge in teaching the arts.
"Online Sing Squad is a ray of sunshine in these unprecedented times. Beccy’s upbeat spirit and positive attitude makes the session really fun and a great focus for my daughter. We’re already looking forward to our next session!"
"I’ve been enjoying Harmonix from the beginning. It’s a great place to have a good sing, be a bit silly and learn all in one place! In these strange and unusual times, I was beginning to miss friends and normality. Thankfully, Beccy was quick to move sessions online and for a few hours on a Sunday evening we can escape. It’s a great way to manage stress and anxiety too and welcome more than ever!"
"Having Beccy teach me is the highlight of my week. My voice is being pushed in all the right places and I am being given the confidence to do things I didn’t think I could. I cannot recommend this lovely lady enough offering her magic and vast knowledge to all ages!"
"Knowing my child can learn to sing with someone like Beccy is really exciting. Not only is she an amazing and experienced musician and teacher, but she cares about good vocal health which is something I think is hugely important – especially in children."
"Beccy Hurrell is a dedicated teacher who is deeply committed to learning new techniques and strategies for teaching. She is committed to education and is passionate about access to education. Her students quite rightly adore her as she is warm, empathetic and nurturing."
"Beccy is such a great role model for young women. She is a fantastic teacher and academic. Would highly recommend!"
"We have been so pleased to see the progress our daughter has made with Beccy and the variety of techniques that she uses. To see how her confidence has grown where she is able to question and discuss with Beccy about how she feels on certain exercises and how she will embrace those that also fall outside her comfort zone. It is a real partnership in every sense and the learning book used each week is a fantastic tool that makes the student take time to reflect on their week and practice."
All sessions are back in person, but you have the option to join online as we embrace hybrid working.
Following our risk assessments our studios are cleaned and ventilated after every session.
